                                      CHICAGO -- Michael Conforto is hoping a short stay in Las Vegas turns into a strong finish with the New York Mets. Kent Bazemore Jersey .Conforto rejoined the Mets before the start of a three-game series against the NL Central-leading Chicago Cubs. The 10th overall pick in the 2014 draft was recalled when Brandon Nimmo, another young outfielder, was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas after Sundays 5-0 win at Philadelphia.Also Monday, Mets right-hander Matt Harvey had season-ending thoracic outlet surgery in St. Louis. Harvey finishes the year with a 4-10 record and a 4.86 ERA after going 13-8 with a 2.71 ERA in 2015.The 23-year-old Conforto made his major league debut last year and hit .270 with nine homers and 26 RBI in 56 games, helping the Mets win the NL East and make it all the way to the World Series. He then homered twice in Game 4 against Kansas City.Conforto was expected to be a key contributor this year and got off to a nice start. But he was sent down on June 25 after a prolonged slump.It was a very productive couple of weeks, 16 games or so, Conforto said. I think there was a period of obviously being upset and youve got to go through that. As soon as I turned it into an opportunity to work on some things, to get some things done and take a look at what happened over the course of the prior couple months, I think I really look a couple big steps forward.Conforto hit .344 with three homers in 16 games with Las Vegas, earning a quick return to the majors.They said he was swinging great and the powers that be said it was time, Mets manager Terry Collins said.Collins mentioned Conforto, Juan Lagares and Curtis Granderson as possible options in center after Yoenis Cespedes told reporters over the weekend he would prefer to stay in left for the rest of the year. Cespedes, who had a team-high 21 homers and 52 RBI coming into the day, has been hampered recently by a strained right quadriceps.Cespedes was in left for the series opener against the Cubs. Collins said he would be in center on Tuesday, but sounded as if he planned to keep him in left for most of the remaining part of the season.Weve got to keep him in the lineup, Collins said. I think were taxing his body pretty heavily by putting him into center field. We need him to hit and we need him to hit a lot. I just think if hes in left field, where hes comfortable and wheres theres not as much emphasis on the defensive side, that hell go back and do what we hope he can do and thats being a big production guy.Conforto said he thinks his last game in center was in college at Oregon State. But he said he was ready to play wherever Collins puts him.We had a conversation today about that, Conforto said. I know I havent played there in pro ball. But if the team needs me there, Im going to do whatever I can to prepare myself to play as well as I can there.---AP freelance reporter Mike Cranston contributed to this report.---Jay Cohen can be reached at http://www.twitter.com/jcohenap Brandon Roy Blazers Jersey . Their 38th instalment is arguably their biggest fight card to date, including three-title fights and a main event which was selected by the fans.  The promotion boasts 14-straight years of business and is operated by MFC president Mark Pavelich, who is often overlooked in this country for the foundation hes established for MMA in Canada. Caleb Swanigan Jersey . Only three players drafted by NHL clubs were included on the Czech selection camp roster on Wednesday. Those players were Dallas Stars 2012 first-rounder Radek Faksa, Winnipeg Jets 2013 fourth-rounder Jan Kostalek and Phoenix Coyotes 2012 seventh-rounder Marek Langhamer. https://www.blazerslockerroom.com/Mario-Hezonja-City-Edition-Jersey/ . PETERSBURG, Fla. Western Sydney star Mitch Nicholls has urged his new teammates to trust in the patient game plan that got the Wanderers out of a similar early-season funk last season.Much like in 2015/16 the Wanderers find themselves last after the first round having been thrashed by Sydney FC on Saturday.And with just eight players remaining from the 16-man squad that fell to Adelaide in last seasons decider, Nicholls said a slow start is the price you pay for a huge personnel turnover.He believes sticking to the system that worked wonders last campaign is key.Weve changed a lot of players, but not much has changed in the game plan, Nicholls told AAP.That was one thing we didnt do on the weekend,. We didnt put our foot on the ball and keep it and make them work. We had a you-attack, we-attack game.The players that come in, obviously it will take time. Pre-season is a good time to gel but the seasons started. Its about us getting on the front foot and building some momentum.Nicholls said the team, wholl play last seasons grand final foes in Adelaide on Friday, had spent much oof this week focusing on not panicking if a few goals get past them. Rodney Hood Blazers Jersey. Its about us not crumbling, falling apart when they score or get behind, Nicholls said.We really didnt play our game as much. We were forcing it too much and not being patient. Defensively we need to not let them get those chances and be more compact.Like they did last year, the 27-year-old said he would have faith in both the playing roster and coach Tony Popovic.It took the Wanderers a month before claiming their first victory in 2015-16.Were not going to throw it in and change what weve been working on last year and this pre-season based on one result, he said.Obviously its very disappointing at home losing to our rivals, but weve got faith. Weve had a good week on the pitch this week - everyones fit and theres no injuries.Everyones putting their hand up for selection and want to take the game to Adelaide. Well look to get the three points down there. ' ' '
